Instant reaction: Isaiah Simmons is choice for Giants in BBV community mock draft

Dobbins will be one of the first running backs off the board — perhaps even the first running back taken, depending on how things fall on draft night. He is an undersized running back, but plays big and has a well-rounded game. So...
